2015 Hilton Head Jamboree and Concours d'Elegance

 

Sandy beaches, sunshine, and warm temperatures -- all good reasons to visit Hilton Head Island. But, spending time on the island is irresistible when you add to the mix the Hilton Head Motoring Festival (HHMF). Three events of the HHMF: a Car Club Jamboree, Concours d'Elegance, and a car auction (hosted by the official auction company for the event) were held October 31 through November 1 on the Island. Here, some of the country's finest collector vehicles were exhibited, either for show or for sale. Beautiful scenery, gorgeous cars, and plenty of southern hospitality -- who could have asked for more?

 

This year's Concours showcased 170 classic vehicles, spanning 1900 through 1973. Chrysler, this year's featured marque, included a full spectrum of Mopars, such as Imperials, DeSotos, Airflow Coupes, Belvederes, a Dodge Challenger, a Superbird, Woodies, and Chrysler-powered Ghias. Also, BMW celebrated 100 years with special Beamers, and iconic examples of the Shelby Mustang and Porsche marked 50 and 40 years, respectively.
